Summary

Coby Fleener was not as successful in his first season with the Saints as many expected. Previously the Saints tight ends had dominated, with Ben Watson having a career year in 2015 catching 74 passes for 825 yards and 6 TDs. For the three seasons before that, Jimmy Graham had averaged 85 catches for 1,030 yards and 12 TDs. Fleener produced only 50 catches for 631 yards and 3 TDs. These numbers were not any better than he had averaged in Indianapolis. He seemed to struggle at times with the offense and lost snaps to Josh Hill in mid-season before Hill injured his fibula and went on IR. At this point, he remains the starter but it would not be surprising if Fleener faces pre-season competition for playing time at tight end this year. (May 20)
